At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Architectural immersion in Hindu religious culture.

The city of London is a very multicultural capital which celebrates its diversity. Discover the stunning silhouette of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandi: with its white domes and pillars it is a beautiful example of Indian craftsmanship. Commonly known as the Neasden Temple, this landmark London building has an intricately decorated interior with fine patterns and images of Hindu deities. In this way, the walls, ceiling and windows take you into an exploration of a religion which is over 8,500 years old.

In 2000, this temple was the largest Hindu temple outside of India. Since then, the Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha organisation has built other larger temples, notably one close to Chicago, then Toronto and finally Atlanta.

The permanent exhibition on site entitled "Understanding Hinduism" offers the key to understanding the many symbols you will find in the temple.
